We’ve officially entered the Dog Days of Summer, so that means it’s time for a batch of sangria. Mix it up the night before your party, so that the flavors can mingle overnight. Feel free to mix and match different fruits to suit your own particular preferences. If you can find fresh pomegranate seeds, they make a nice addition to a zinfandel-based sangria, or substitute a favorite liqueur for the Grand Marnier (such as crème de cassis or olallieberry wine). 
Sangria is especially delicious when served with a selection of Spanish Tapas. A few recipes from Saveur Magazine, HERE.
